Why is it that one thing happens after the other in a seemingly endless continuum into infinity with the express end result of irritating me? Why can’t people leave me alone in peace?
It started this morning. Got an e-mail from one of those courier companies saying the item I bought on the Internet will be delivered today between 2:00 and 6:00.
Great … that’s four hours that I have to sit and wait. Can’t go out. Can’t do any gardening in case they arrive and I don’t hear the doorbell. Can’t go climb Mount Everest, or visit the Seven Wonders of the World, or go to the bathroom or anything else in case they arrive in this four hours window. The rest of the family is out for the day, and I have to stay indoors and listen for the doorbell.
